* Toothless from ''HowToTrainYourDragon'' cannot speak, but you can always get a pretty good idea of what he's thinking by reading his facial expressions. There are even a few scenes where Hiccup and Toothless seem to communicate with ''only'' this.

* In ''KungFuHustle'', the landlady of Pigsty Alley [[StealthHiBye pays a visit]] to Sum's car to give them a long-winded talking-to, which she does with much aplomb, and without speaking a single word out loud (though some of her dialogue comes from her hands, or rather, her fists. She doesn't punch anyone but she makes it clear that she has no qualms about doing so in future if necessary. She then [[StealthHiBye sends the intruders off]] without inflicting any physical harm, but she's delivered a wordless ultimatum that was clearer-than-crystal.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txIrDNOJcj8 In this song]], ''Theatre/{{Carmen}}'' doesn't have any words, but body language can be used in scenes like this to add more characterization. This production (from the Met Opera, filmed in 2010) takes it above and beyond - she goes through several different emotions and realizations in this time.

[[AC:WesternAnimation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'': For unknown reasons, [[TheVoiceless the mute Freedom Fighter Longshot]] does this all the time. He's understood by his companions through his eyes and facial expressions, which ([[FridgeLogic somehow]]) indicate his thoughts and viewpoints on particular subjects. [[spoiler:[[SuddenlyVoiced He doesn't talk at all until Jet is killed]], and even then, only says less than fifteen words.]]

She doesn't punch anyone but she makes it clear that she has no qualms about doing so in future if necessary. She then [[StealthHiBye sends the intruders off]] without inflicting any physical harm, but she's delivered a wordless ultimatum that was clearer-than-crystal.
